One of the most interesting trends at SXSW Interactive 2011 was in my opinion how motivation is now a central issue in many fields. The forefront of web and technology has realised that technology will not solve all problems and the belief that ”if you build it, they will come” has not come true. Those involved with community building and developing, health managing, fitness technology, webdesign and user experience have already realised that we need to harness the knowledge we have from the domains covering human behavior, such as cognitive science and psychology – and apply that knowledge to help people keep motivated to keep working and achieving their long-term goals.
